Understanding Food and Inflammation: A Video Lesson for Autoimmune Patients

Get a bird's-eye view of your diet through an inflammation-aware lens.

One of the most powerful things we can do to tame our inflammation-induced symptoms is eat foods that work with us, not against us.

This workshop is all about what we eat and drink - and whether it makes inflammation worse or better.

I’ve sifted through the research and found the studies with the most scientific consensus and strongest evidence.

At the end of the workshop, you will have the knowledge you need to choose the right foods for your anti-inflammatory diet - no more hours of searching the internet for usable information that makes sense.

Included in your enrollment is:

Downloadable worksheets that tell you:

  1. Dietary Inflammatory Index of almost 50 different food parameters
  2. Lists of almost 40 foods rich in healthy fats
  3. Average glycemic index of 8 different categories of food.
  4. The top 12 anti-inflammatory food parameters.

Plus, a diet tracker for you to use before and after the workshop.

Hello, my name is Susan Masterson and I am a mom of a boisterous little girl, a wife, writer, and a total research nerd with a PhD in Health Psychology - living with a chronic illness.

For much of my life I had a combination of symptoms that no doctors realized were all connected in one underlying disease. It all finally made sense when I was diagnosed with Sjogren's in 2017.

But for years before that, I thought my symptoms were "in my head", blamed myself for feeling rotten, and tried to "lifestyle my way" into feeling better.

- I tried eating the "perfect", healthy diet.

- I tried exercising vigorously to get more energy.

- I was obsessed with getting enough sleep.

After my diagnosis, I finally understood that my body is different. Once and for all I gave myself permission to stop pressuring myself to "feel normal" and recognized that what I was doing was in fact, making me worse.

I do still believe that healthy lifestyle/self-care habits are necessary, but when you're living with a chronic illness, you have to tailor your approach to your body.

I want to bring you what I've learned about how food, exercise, and stress relate to autoimmune diseases, so you can avoid spinning your wheels like I did.

With my background in health/medical psychology plus what I've figured out from experience, you can benefit from what I know.

My courses and workshops will help you (in your partnership with your doctor) identify the lifestyle plan that will work best with your medical treatment - to make you feel better.
